      Accommodation

      I live in Upper Bangor and it is very popular with other students. Means you dont have to deal with hills for certain subjects. I decided to live there because it was close to the place for all my lectures also near morrisons, the shop I was used to in first year. Also a really good crepe cafe. Also it is near the main pub for societies, Belle Vue and easy access to the train station.

      Accommodation

      Was difficult to find accomodation for 2 people that wasnt set up for a couple, not two friends. The reason we started early was I was too relaxed last year and had very limited choice and ended up with a not so good house.

      Accommodation

      We started looking so soon (October 2017) because we were aware that the houses were being advertised already. As we didn't want to spend too much we didn't mind looking earlier. Initially we searched through a private letting agent and found that they tended to put us under pressure to sign a contract there and then. Due to this (and the fact that they were very expensive) we started searching through the student union listings (that offer a list of certified trustworthy landlords) and found a brilliant house that had a private landlord. We went to view the house twice in November with the landlord and signed the contract in December as it was a very good price compared to other houses being advertised. We did not experience any difficulty and the student union reviewed our contract thoroughly (for free) before we signed.
